PUSH is a really weak movie that attempts to capitalize on the X-Men popularity. In concept the movie could have been OK, and it's nicely shot. The sound design is exceptional, and there are some good actors cast, although you couldn't tell it from the way they act in this film. Both Djimon Hounsou and Dakota Fanning are embarrassingly bad here.

The script is extremely weak and the execution even worse. The climactic sequence is literally laughable. I get the feeling that they ran out of money, or somebody saw dailies and decided to pull the plug on the movie and finish as quickly as possible. This is another movie with an awful lot of ADR too, again, a sign of production problems either in script or performance.

Can't recommend it.
